In William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, symbolism is used to depict a greater meaning within the objects that appear throughout the novel. One of the recurring symbols is the scar created in the story. The scar is created when the plane that the boys were in crashed onto the island. This was meant to represent man destroying nature simply by entering it. “Beyond falls and cliffs there was a gash visible in the trees; there were the splintered trunks and then the drag, leaving only a fringe of palm between the scar and the sea” (page 29).
Where did the Second World War come from? Was it made by something inhuman and alien or was it made by chaps with eyes and legs and hearts?’” (Doc C) What Golding was trying to say is that people are capable of do something inhumane. He also used some words to describe a monster. That its either something alien-like and inhuman or people with eyes, legs and hearts. In Lord of the Flies, the war led to the boys evacuating from England and to the crash landing of the plane.
The human nature can be a vile, corrupt, and heinous object that will do anything to benefit itself and put down others. This is the bleak reality of the human nature. LoTF, written by William Golding, and Kite Runner, written by Khaled Hosseini are two books that follow the tragic stories of young boys who lost and sacrificed everything when they succumbed to their evil desires. Lord of the Flies and Kite runner both shed light on human nature by showing the inherent evil that can be evoked, how it can lead to the loss of childhood innocence, and the sacrifices we are willing to make. The quality that defines the human nature best is our inherent evil.

While on the beach near the Trojan horse, Sinon begins to tell his story of how he arrived on the beach. After pausing Sinon says, “Then take your overdue vengeance at once: / for this is what the Ithacan would wish; / the sons of Atreus-they would pay for this” (II, 147-149). When Sinon stops telling the story and tells them to take their vengeance, he creates a logical plan for the Trojan’s to carry out. After Sinon tells the Trojan’s that the Greek’s picked him to be sacrificed he breaks his oath to his country. Quickly, Sinon states, “it now is right for me to break the holy / oath of my loyalty and right for me / to hate the Greeks, to bring all things to light, / whatever they conceal” (II, 220-223).

However, in the movie "Life is Beautiful", Guido does all he can to prevent Joshua from finding out the truth of the circumstances.

So he went to the other gods and told them he chose to be turned into a carp and swim in the river where he could take care of his people.
